Malko Linge is an agent for the CIA.
This title is also used as a codename for the agent. Though he is eligible for American citizenship, he prefers to stay foreign.
Malko, Austrian by birth, is truly a man of the world and his wide experience in virtually every corner is testiment to that. At one time he owned a house in Poughkeepsie, New York, but during the course of the series he elected to move to the castle he owns in Liezen, Austria and for which he devotes most of his earnings to restoring. Few of his acquaintances know of his work with the Agency and see him mainly as a jet-setting playboy, a fact he does nothing to change as it provides good cover no matter where he travels.
Linge remains a bachelor though he has an ongoing relationship with a Baroness, later becoming engaged, in a nearby town.
